Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda has always been vocal about how special It’s Showtime’s all-male dance crew Hashtags is to him. Although Vice makes fun of them, teases them and pranks them live on the noontime show, he always reminds them that what he does is a sign of his real tough love for them.
Since they were launched as the “kilig ambassadors” on It’s Showtime, the Hashtags’ close friendship with Vice likewise sparked. Just a month after their launching, they already guested in Vice’s Sunday late-night comedy talk show Gandang Gabi Vice.
In 2016, the first batch of hashtags returned on the Gandang Gabi Vice stage performing Randy Santiago’s hit single ‘Bababaero’. All of them also did the #ChillDanceChallenge in the same episode.
When the Hashtags added new members in February 2017, Vice welcomed them all with open arms. The second batch also guested on Gandang Gabi Vice in September that same year, showcasing their singing talent, which they said was their edge over the first batch.
Hashtags Zeus, Ronnie, Vitto, Kid and Wilbert guested again on Vice’s popular show just recently. Their special guesting was to feature the newest group they formed with Vice called the “Hypebeks Battalion.” They also recalled how they started to become close to each other by just hanging out in Vice’s dressing room during commercials on It’s Showtime.
Indeed, Vice Ganda’s bond with the Hashtags is deep and tight. No matter what, the Hashtags’ close friendship with Vice is truly valuable and these snaps prove it
